Documentaire: Dancing in the flames | Marianne Woodman
Powerful, insightful, provocative, Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames explores the inspiring life and many ‘deaths’ of one of the western world’s most important wisdom keepers, and sends a clarion call to a planet in the midst of “a shedding of its outworn skin”. Renowned Jungian analyst and author, Marion Woodman is celebrated for her work on feminine psychology and addiction, but her words and her wisdom speak to nearly everyone.
With insight from our guide, the brilliant mystic and author Andrew Harvey, Marion explores the mysteries of her soul’s journey and reveals a series of psychological ‘deaths’ and ‘rebirths’ that have made her who she is today. From her battle with anorexia, to her revelatory experiences in India, to her ever-evolving marriage, to her dance with cancer, Marion has ‘died into life’ and thus is a perfect teacher and mid-wife for this critical period in our history.
